12 Days of Onyx: Your First Card

Chronicles of Darkness

Slider_12DaysHang those stockings and grab that nog, ’cause we’ve got a “nice” contest update for you!

So far, we’ve got over two dozen entries into the 12 Days of Onyx Contest. By far, the most popular holiday-themed Condition Cards you’ve created are for the newly-released Chronicles of Darkness rulebook. In terms of specific games, we’re seeing more entries for Changeling: The Lost, Demon: The Descent, and Hunter: The Vigil. Unfortunately, we don’t have as many entries for Vampire: The Requiem, Promethean: The Created, or Werewolf: The Forsaken. Hopefully, that’ll help you choose which game to design a Condition Card for.

Popular holiday themes are related to the movie It’s a Wonderful Life, family get-togethers, shopping, Santa, Rudolph, Krampus, and some fun ideas related to this time of year.

Today, we’re pleased to announce our first holiday-themed Condition Card for the Chronicles of Darkness. Congrats! Be sure to check out the 12 Days of Onyx thread on our forums to review the other entries and add your own. There’s no limit as to how many you design.

Something terribly catchy is playing in the air — a car radio that only tunes into religious stations, jingle-bell ambience at the mall, or a doggedly persistant group of carolers. It’s annoying and distracting, but nearly impossible to get out of your head, even after the song itself ends. Take a -1 to Perception checks.

Possible sources: Any sufficiently annoying song

Beat: Inflict the condition on another character who does not currently have it (once per scene).

Resolution: A full night’s rest, meditation, becoming completely andutterly distracted by something that is not that stupid song

Please note: Mirthful Mike has given us an update that the maximum word count for our holiday-themed Condition Cards is 110 words. This is to ensure that the text is readable and presentable on the card. If you’d like to double-check your entry and edit down your entry if you know you’ve gotten wordy, that’d be great. Thanks!
